when morsi became the country's first democratically elected president in june of last year. but increasingly frustrated with what they saw as his authoritarian rule, and his failure to fulfill promises, many egyptians took to the streets again. a growing wave of protest ended up with the military's decision to remove morsi from office in an act that morsi himself said is against the law. >> the difference between the trial of dr. morsi and the trial of mubarak is that mubarak has abundant authority. according to the law and institution morsi is the president of the rebel. this is the legal and constitutional situation right now. >> if morsi is convicted of incitement to commit murder he could be sentenced to death. al jazeera, cairo. >> meanwhile, secretary of state john kerry now working to de fuse the tensions between the the u.s. and saudi arabia. kerry is continuing his tour of the middle east. it comes after plains of holy spirit of syria, iran and the middle east peace process. >> the saudis are the senior player, if you will, within the arab world with egypt. egypt i

disposal. if you look at the senate at this point the republicans can't win a national election. the only reason they control the house they gerrymandered districts and making efforts to suppress people from participating in the voting process. in 2014 up for election making democrats nervous, 24 republicans up for re-election in the senate and 10 democrats up for re-election. so they could go forward with the nuclear option. who knows, it may not even hurt them for another six to twelve years. >> i think the other issue here with the senate is clearly starting to see a moderation. when you talk with -- you do this as well, sam. when you talk to republican operatives dealing with senate races, they are talking in a much more moderate way and much more hostile to the house. i think from a political perspective. the thing about cornyn and grassley speech, they were completely lame. >> hold on. keep in mind, nuclear option only about executive nominees. reid did this for a purpose. he doesn't want to expand scope including legislative and judicial. >> this is a leverage game with republicans
, this is being criticized. the new government in pakistan has largely been elected on a position of ending u.s. drone strikes in pakistan and starting peace talks with the pakistani taliban. government officials in pakistan are angry about this. however, many security officials in pakistan are actually welcoming this move. he is a ruthless and violent leader of the taliban as i said here in afghanistan. his death is being welcomed not only by americans but also afghans who see him as sort of a root cause of many problems here in afghanistan. now, it should be noted, kelly, that the pakistani taliban have already appointed a new leader of the pakistani taliban movement. they're also vowing revenge. so right now, even though they've lost their head, kelly, it appears the taliban will continue to launch attacks in both pakistan and here in afghanistan. >> conor powell reporting from afghanistan, thank you for that report. >>> fresh fallout over the ailing obama care website. for those of you still trying to sign up, the site will be offline for repairs starting tonight at 9:00 p.m. that's expec
who used to be the prime minister was re-elected as the prime minister. he's not been on the job for six months. it's essential for him staying in power to say to pakistani citizens - i hear your concerns and fears, and i'm trying to do my best to stand up to washington to prevent the source of attacks from happening. in fact, there was a family which travelled from pakistan to washington to atone members of congress, the impact that one such drone strike had on their family. they weren't the targets but lost their grandmother in what can be described as collateral damage. it's the sort of thing that terrified people, making them feel they can't trust wabz -- washington, which says it's a close ally of pakistan. >> have we heard from the white house today? >> we have not heard from the white house, but from a senior administration official who is telling al jazeera that while the administration can't confirm that hakimullah mehsud was killed on friday in the drone strike, or that khan said has become the new head of the pakistani taliban, the official goes on to say in the u.s.'
. he says the polls could do him a disservice because voters actually have to get there on election day and cast ballots. so he says he is trying to grind it out, push from town to town to connect with voters, to make sure they actually turn out. there's also the issue of how big of a margin might he have if he is, in fact, going to win, how big a win. and i talked to him about that last night. >> i'm not planning for it. i just think it's inevitable. you know, i think people look at elections and try to discern things from them about what they mean at that moment and what they mean for the future. i think that what people are going to see is so unusual for what our party has created in the last couple years that invariably people are going to draw in. i hope they do. >> is the margin necessary so lay a future for your career? >> i don't think so. remember something, barack obama won this state by 17 points a year ago. the fact you're eastbouven talk a republican about margin rather than can you win or no is a good thing to have. >> reporter: we've also been talking to voters here. many
are set to shape up the political word. new details from "double down." the details from the 2012 election are leaking to the press. remember the rumors the obama administration was thinking of booting vice president biden off the ticket for hillary clinton. >> that's crazy news chatter. >> joe, you heard from insiders about this. everybody poo-pooed you. >> said it early on. people were talking about it in '11. i heard from insiders. we talked about it on this show. everybody laughed. >> well, it turns out, when you say it, yeah. it turns out -- it turns out, oba obama's chief of staff at the time, was actively pushing the idea. his quote, i was vocal about looking into a bunch of things. this was one of them. you have to remember, at that point, the president was in awful shape. so, we were like holy christ, what do we do. fortunately for vice president biden, research suggested the move wasn't going to help the president's chances. i wonder why? >> hillary clinton's approval rating is down to 46% right now, i saw. hillary clinton -- >> this is interesting. >> i have great admiration for
